Reminder: Twitter posts are my opinions only, not Oracle’s.

FYI if the @OracleDatabase didn’t exist the world economy would grind to a halt;

If most open source distributed databases didn’t exist, the world would be a much safer place for data.

Check out nitter.net. It provides a way of browsing Twitter without having to deal with proprietary JS!

Does NOT bode well for MySQL. Reminder to switch to MariaDB or a completely different relational database if FOSS matters to you.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
